DATA AND RESEARCH
In order for housing to be “affordable,” a household should be spending no more than 30% of total monthly income on housing-related costs.
We use the term cost-burdened to describe when a household spends more than 30% of income on housing.
When our housing costs rise above 30%, we cannot afford other basic needs, such as healthcare, food, and similar necessities.
In Johnson County, 18% of homeowners and 61% of renters* are cost-burdened by their housing.
